A couple of days ago, I thought I might be going into labor and we would have a Christmas baby.
(I will link to a certain commenter who drew that number before me, just as soon as her blog gets updated.)
Everything at our house ground to a halt and now we are staying home waiting. Could be a day, could be three weeks.

So, instead of baby news, here is a link to a piece about paternity leave by Ta-Nehisi Coates, with the provocative title "Why I'm Against 'Daddy Days.'" See what you think. I'm always struck by the quality of Coates' writing, and he usually brings a new-to-me POV whether I wind up agreeing with him or not.
